Your cellphone, without your knowledge, has been tracking and recording your every move. Here is how to prevent this from continuing to happen.

This may not be news to some, but to others this could be the first time you are hearing of your cellphones hidden "frequent locations" feature.

According to WGN, the "frequent locations" feature records and tracks the time, dates, how long you stay somewhere, where you live and work based on your time and trips there.

This feature is something I've known about for a while and have disabled it on my phone.

This feature could be something that can be used in divorce cases, as confessions and more. This isn't something that is only on iPhone, but is also happening for Android users as well.

Here is how to turn off the "frequent locations" feature on your cellphone:


  1. Click "Settings"
  2. Go to "Privacy"
  3. Select "Location Services"
  4. Scroll down to "System Services"
  5. Choose "Frequent Locations" to see the logged record of where you've been -- de-select this to turn the feature off.


  1. Open the App Drawer and go to Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap Location.
  3. Scroll down and tap Google Location Settings.
  4. Tap Location Reporting and Location History, and switch the slider to off for each one.
  5. To delete your phone's location cache, tap "Delete Location History" at the bottom of the screen under Location History.
  6. Repeat this process for each Google Account you have on your Android device.

The steps are so easy, if you feel as if your privacy is being recorded without your permission, I suggest you remove the feature immediately.
